Some pros, but some big cons too.

  • Summary: This review is for Sony hdr-cx260v I do filming of productions and use several cameras to record the events-this little beast is my backup unit, as it has the worst picture quality of the cameras I use. In 60i, the picture is grainy compared to my Sony hdr-cx560's and Canon g20's. I do love the small size, and use it for interviews and behind the scene stealth work; fits into my pockets easily.

Good, but seems like not Sony level

  • Summary: I'll start off by saying that everything which is said about the product in the description is true, but it is important to know things that the description does not mention. I had a Sony camera before, bought in ~2003 and I must admit that the quality of the last camera was much better in many or almost all aspects, except the video quality, which is the reason why I bought this one (+ to avoid buying Hi8 tapes).

  • Summary: I do lots of basketball recording & wanted to have a couple of cameras, so that if games were going on at the same time, we could make sure and get coverage of both. I've had lots of different video recorders & have had good luck with Sony so went with this. Pro: The SD card makes it easy to record lots of video & with the extended battery I can typically record 8 hrs of video with no issue. Con: the unit is a bit 'flimsy' so worried about how well it will hold up.

  • Summary: Bought this Refurbished from Sony, at a killer price! (250) Video quality surprised me, coming from a Kodak Z950. However, the colors seemed dull in sunlight. Finding videos in the camera via GPS can only be good for a world traveler, or a trucker. Not fond of the menu system. Maps were always in my way.

Fails...

  • Summary: Most folks want to know the bad stuff or fails of a product vs what is cool. No ring on lens for filters - Why? old sony video cameras had ring mounts. If Camera is on a tripod you can not remove the Memorey Card. Card slot is on the bottom and should be on the side or top. Should of come with a infra red remote. or have the sensor to use the remote. The camera is $499 and has no remote or sensor to use a remote.

disappointed ....

  • Summary: We bought a GoPro some time back for water activities and due to it's limited focal plane, decided to get the Sony Handycam for beach shots of surfing and wildlife movies due to it's ability to zoom in so well according to the reviews .... while we found the camera worked well in cloudy conditions, as soon as we got into bright sunlight the touchscreen became basically a black mirror and was useless unless held under a towel or some other sort of shade ...

Sony HDR-CX260V

  • Summary: Great camera to take along on vacation, family get togethers, outdoor trips, etc. Compact and easy to use. Video quality as expected during daytime hours. Not so good at night. Not happy with quality of still photos but it is a video camera. Agree with other reviews regarding difficult to use the viewfinder during daylight hours. I would recommend buyers may want to shop around and compare before making a decission.

  • Excerpt: Была бы отличная камера, если бы не сильный недостаток с записью звука. Причем этот же недостаток и у младшего собрата HDR-CX250. Могли бы и устранить.
  • Pros: Снимает хорошо. Отлично лежит в руке. Подзарядка от USB. Хороший зум.
  • Cons: На записи звука шум как от крутящихся шестеренок. Жутко бесит и похоже он у всех этих камер.

  • Excerpt: Hola amigos esta es la ultima videocámara que he comprado, ya que la que me regalaron no paro de dejarla, claro yo también quiero hacer videos y subirlos a You Tuve. La verdad que el diseño me ha encantado por que es pequeña y muy compacta, es muy fácil de programar y sin duda, no requiere que te saques un master en imagen y sonido. Ofrece una calidad de visión en alta definición y puedes trabajar con casi todos los formatos de video.
  • Pros: Quería una vida fácil pero parece que he seleccionado el modo experto .
  • Cons: Odio que Angelina Jolie me llame cuando estoy con Carmen Electra en la cama .
